Summary: I'm a big fan of air combat games in general, and not necessarily the ultra-realistic flight sims (though I have enjoyed some of those). I've also played some games in this series, including the 3DS offering Assault Horizon Legacy. That one was pretty fun too, given the mobile platform.
Summary: This is a very pretty game and, though accurate, that is NOT a compliment. Yes, the graphics are great. Yes, the selection of air craft is respectable and is basically what you should expect. But that's where the good points end, and rather abruptly to boot.

Summary: It irks me that i have to write such an unfavorable review to one of my favorite childhood games. I really wanted to like it and i did at first. But then came the "additions". Dogfights, Helicopters, loud and extremely annoying, somewhat-story-related nagging of the game NPC. Why?
Summary: 1. When fighting enemy 'aces' the plane flys itself (DFM Mode) so there is no skill needed whatsoever, just press the missle button when a circle turns red. It could only be more insulting if it fired for you. 2.
Summary: Die Ace Combat Reihe war zwar noch nie für außergewöhnlichen Realismus bekannt, allerdings haben die Entwickler bei diesem Sprösling wirklich drastisch überzogen. Die Physik wurde vollends auf Arcade getrimmt und die Jets können nun innerhalb weniger Sekunden die Höchstgeschwindigkeit erreichen und...
